1  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / please please please help on pippi kneestockings on: April 05, 2006 05:57:01 PM
okay so i searched through other peoples questions on this pattern and i have another one.  i've made socks before, (once), but i can never get the picking up stitches part right (after you turn the heel)  so i'm trying to follow this pattern precisley but i'm getting really frustrated.  first, after you turn the heel, it says to K4, change to D, pm, k4 with needle 1.  so if you're supposed to knit the second set of four on needle 1, what needle is the first set of 4 knit on?  then, it says to hold an empty needl ein your right hand and insert it into the slipped stitch from front to back..i thought i understood that, but then how are you suppoesd to knit it if it's on the right side?  are you supposed to turn it around so that the stitch you just picked up with your right hand is now in your left hand, and knit tbl that way?  i'm so freakin confused / frustrated, can anyone help?

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / log cabin pot holder on: February 01, 2006 09:31:00 PM
tonight, after a two or so year hiatus, i decided i was going to start quilting again.  since i don't have the time or patience to make an entire quilt, i'm going to make lots of smaller things.  tonight's project was a log cabin potholder. 

there's tons of things that i could have done better, but i think it came out alright and now i have a potholder for my first apartment!
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / LAPTOP CASE(s): vinyl goodness! on: July 12, 2005 04:10:38 PM
I recently got a 15" Powerbook, as a graduation present from my parents.  I plan on toting it around with me in my backpack so I decided it needed some kind of protective case. 

My first attempt was with this neat seafoam green vinyl I found, and some colorful flower printed cotton I found;

Today I used an orangey-red vinyl and some buggy fabric for the lining to make another!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / question regarding runched / ruffley pockets on: February 21, 2005 01:26:40 PM
okay so i'm pretty much going crazy trying to figure this out. i've looked through a jillion different sites on runching, ruffles, gathering etc and cannot figure out how to do it.  anyways, here is a picture of the bag i would like to make:

i figured the pockets wouldn't be a problem..but they are.  does anyone know how to do something like this / could direct me to a tutorial or something? im getting sososo frustrated ajdsflk.

6  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / finished russian winter hat! on: January 27, 2005 07:25:23 PM
so i went to ac moore the other day, planning on getting the supplies for the newsboy cap.  however, i saw this yarn that reminded me of the russian winter hat, so i got it and made that instead. 

it doesnt look exactly like the one in the book, but its really soft and i like it nonetheless!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First Cabling Project! A Clutch on: January 18, 2005 04:19:38 PM
I just finished my first cabling project, a clutch, inspired by Margaret Nicole clutches: http://www.margaretnicole.com/MargaretNicole2/homepage/copy%20of%20homepage.htm

I lined it with some vintage fabric I had from a previous project, and added a snap (but it came out kind of off center..I'll probably end up re-doing it.)

The lining was really weird to do..I didn't know if you could use a sewing machine to sew into knitted fabric, so i just hemmed the edges and hand sewed it in..probably not the best way to go about putting in the lining but it worked..kind of.

Oh and I made the handles all by myself!  Well, my dad did the shape because I can't handle tools and all that, but I stained and finished them!  I'm so proud!
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Hobo Bag(s) on: June 27, 2004 05:46:40 PM
I found a tutorial on here for a hobo bag a while ago and made one.  I got a whole bunch of compliments on it so I made two more today for two friends who are going to the National Irish Dance Championship in July, as presents.  Hope you like Smiley

the first one (the black stitching on the bottom is because i hadn't reversed it when i took the picture, it's not like that now)

one of the ones i made today

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Recently Finished Hat on: January 18, 2004 10:06:40 AM
I just joined this forum and figured I should post a picture of a hat I finished a week or two ago.

(excuse my blank expression)

I made it out of Lionbrand Boucle in Sprinkles and the pom-poms are Sorbet.  I hadn't intended on adding the pom poms but it looked kinda plain w/o them. But I had run out of the Sprinkles and had some of the other color laying around, so I figured it'd add to the..eccentric look. What do you think?
